This is beautifully done! It not only describes the essential elements of Romanticisim as a philosophy, but the art work expresses the sentiments and vision of the movement so vividly for high school students. I teach American literature to 11th grade English Learners, college prep and AP Students. I would like to be able to use this if you would allow me to do so. My email is lstagg@psusd.us. Thank you for considering my request.~ Loret Stagg
